Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will make her final attempt this season of breaking the women’s 100m world record on Tuesday (14 Sept).

Fraser-Pryce ran two personal best times this season of 10.63 at a local meet in Kingston and 10.60 to win the Lausanne Diamond League. She was pushed to the line in Luassane by Elaine Thompson-Herah.

At the Gala dei Castelli, a World Athletics Continental Tour meet in Bellinzona, Switzerland, Fraser-Pryce will have two finalists from Tokyo 2020 to push her to the line.

Swiss stars Ajla Del Ponte and Mujinga Kambundji, both sub-11 sprinters, should give Fraser-Pryce the push needed in her pursue of 10.49. American Florence Delorez Griffith Joyner (Flo-Jo) has held the world record since 1988.

Elain Thompson-Herah is the fastest woman alive with 10.54.

“A few years ago, the world record seemed far away, but now it looks possible, although Elaine is closer to it than I am right now!” Fraser-Pryce said last month before her 10.60 performance.

“It’s a great feeling to be a part of this phenomenal set of women who are making a big mark on the sport. We deserve to be here at the top. This group of women are showing that we can do anything we put our minds to,” added Fraser-Pryce, who pulled out of last week’s Diamond League final in Zurich.

Jamaican Natoya Goule, who missed winning the Diamond League title, will race in her pet event.

 Fred Kerley and Andre De Grasse will again clash for the second time in a week. They will contest the men’s 100m.

Tokyo bronze medalist Femke Bol, Nadine Visser, Alison dos Santos are some other stars down to compete.

Katerina Stefanidi is in the pole vault,



  1. Do what you can I don’t think the Africans deserve to win against any woman that abide on the Americas continent why because of thier foremother and forefathers history, of selling thier foremother and forefathers into slavery. I hope the Black women from the Americas WIN against those that come from Africa that REPRESENT any African COUNTRY.
